Domaine Baud Blanc de Blanc Crémant du Jura Brut NV

Jura, FranceThis family estate dates back to 1742, but it wasn't until 1950 when René Baud, 7th generation, rebuilt the vineyards, expanding from 4 hectares into 20 hectares over the years. Today the estate is managed by siblings Clémentine and Bastien, 9th generation. This sustainably farmed chardonnay is rooted in the Jura's marl and limestone soils and was fermented in stainless before a year on lees before disgorgement and release. Green apple, white florals, oyster shells, meadow herbs, meringue run the bright, sleek palate, with a bed of creamy lees. There's a lovely streaming anise note that leads to a lengthy finish. Drinking beautifully now, but will hold over the next couple years easy.Tasted: 03 November 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 24.95 consignment Producer: Domaine Baud Père & FilsDistributors: Nicholas Pearce Wines
